Deviation from OTAR Part 21 - Certification of Aircraft
BCAA recognises the need to react effectively to the challenges created by international restrictions to the COVID-19 Pandemic, whilst managing related safety risks effectively.
Due to the pandemic and shortage of dedicated freighter aircraft, operators of passenger aircraft have been requested, by local and national governments, to provide transportation means for immediate medical relief supplies. The BCAA is providing a mechanism for Operators to utilise the passenger compartments of their aircraft to accommodate this urgent demand.
